Summer is steadily arriving, and the British appetite for our brief period of sun is matched only by our appetite for the cuisine that comes along with it! Once we’ve slipped on that old pair of shorts and got ourselves a drink of whatever we fancy, it’s just about time to think about lunch… and whether you whip out the barbeque in the pub garden for events, or you have a special summer menu, or you keep going with your year-round pub classics, it’s always nice to switch up your presentation for the season of al fresco dining – just to hammer home that lovely British summertime feel.
As always, when the time comes, Beaumont has you covered. These small, simple additions to your foodservice offer the twist that you’re looking for to take your customers back to memories of summer holidays gone by, so they can relax and let new memories and good times take root. Many of the items listed here also have the added benefit of being low maintenance and keeping things running smoothly for your staff who are always run ragged in and out of the garden with plenty of hungry, excitable customers to feed at this time of year!
A much-celebrated icon of British summer – chips in a cone have never looked so good! Rather than just being your basic disposable cone, these black wire cones are beautifully made, super practical and easy to clean, adding a real feature to the table, with the added option of a built-in ramekin holder taking convenience to the next level.
Sharers, platters and sides galore are all guaranteed when taking the family out for some summertime pub grub, and you want everything to look great in the middle of the table for everyone to feast their eyes before treating their tastebuds. In keeping with the black wire aesthetic, they go brilliantly with our French Fry Cones.
The pièce de résistance of pub garden platters, our round serving tin exudes a feeling of real abundance when you fill it full of delicious looking bites. Great for sharing starters as well as sitting in the middle of the table during the main course, or just for bar snacks – this is an essential item for the summer.
If you are laying on your own barbeques in the garden or you have something like a burger of the week with a variety of homemade burgers on offer, getting yourself a burger press is a great way to ensure standardisation across every service – also quickening the process for your kitchen staff and making every burger look as delicious as it tastes.
When you’re serving all of this summery deliciousness, one thing is for certain – customers are going to want sauce! Everyone has their preference, but as a minimum, you’ll want mustard, mayo and ketchup – and our selection of squeeze bottles comes in colours to suit each, as well as in a variety of sizes – great for the back of house, and for leaving out in the garden or on the serving table by the barbeque.
With the kitchen stacked up and your front of house team hard-pushed to get to everyone and keep them all happy, you may have decided to leave caddies on tables or at the bar – providing your customers with condiments, napkins, cutlery and anything else they need at their own convenience. We have a range of designs catering for different needs and offering a few aesthetic options depending on your establishment and personal preference.
